hey folks,

im in search of an effect-pedal
im trying to get near the sound of metallica, Randy Rhoads, Led Zeppelin...
i already have the metal muff...but im not that satisfied with it;
its a good pedal but not for the stuff im playing; it produces a loud screamy noise, which
is perfect for trash metal; but im searching for a...more beatiful tone...good pinch harmonics should be possible as well as a good palm mutted sound

hope you can help me!

and please excuse my english

Maybe buy an EQ and keep the metal muff, that'll get good tones if you fiddle with it.
#3
What amp have you got?

And there are some good suggestions .

If you can't get the tones you're talking about from that amp then there's something wrong with you...

you cant get any metal tones out of the vox!
and with the metal muff you can, but the tone is too much screamy and loud and i want something more beautiful

You didn't ask for metal tones - you mentioned Led Zeppelin and Rhandy Rhoads ffs! The Vox will do a pretty good fist of their tones on its own, you certainly won't get any closer with a pedal.

ok im talking about metallica, black sabbath and Rhandy Rhoads!
and the do play metal!!!

Maybe, but other than Metallica you're talking pretty old-school tones there, the Vox can do them fine.

Agreed, just tweak around with the amp a load and see what you can get.

And can't you tweak the Metal Muff so it isn't so screamy?

ok the problem with the vox is, that you cant do a good sounding palm muting and pinch harmonics....with the metal muff you can, but the sound is not so melodic as i want it to be...yes melodic was the word i was searching for...of course you can play around with the metal muff but you will always get the same kind of tone out of it...i want something more melodic!!!

The melody in your sound comes from the way you play, not your gear. Try practicing a lot more. A new pedal won't make you play any better.

The vox most deffinately can do good sounding palm mutes and pinch harmonics like crazy, even better than my 5150 sometimes...

What settings do you use on the Vox?

Can't get good palm mute sound with a Vox? What are your mids at?
#19
of course you can get palm mutes out of the vox, but compared to the metal muff its nothing!!!
the fact is that i want the sound from the vox (with a little metal touch) and the pinch harmonics and palm mutes from the metal muff...is that possible?

btw my vox settings are as follow:
- amptype: Boutique
- gain: 11 '
- volume: 11'
- treble: 12'
- middle: 3'
- bass: 10'
- master: 3'

metal muff settings:
volume: 5'
everything else around 12'
#21
isnt there a pedal, which helps me to get better pinch harmonics and palm mutts out of my Vox?

i was thinking of the Wylde Overdrive Pedal, but it should only be any good for tube amps...

Sure can. The EQ bands on those pedals are really powerfull, so you can pull the edge off the top by cutting the Treble. Also, that pedal has a top boost. Cutting the Top Boost down, or off, and you'll get a much smoother, less screamy distortion.

no it doesnt come with a power adaptor, but yes, you can run it on batteries or any standard 9v pedal adaptor like One-spot.
